really liked it
bookshelves: autism

A well-written, eye opening book about the controversy surrounding autism and vaccines. Dr. Offit clearly lays out what is science and what is not in terms of this debate, and brings about the very clear conclusion that vaccines do not cause autism. Offit also outlines the serious damages caused by people like Andrew Wakefield, David Kirby, and Jenny McCarthy. An extremely interesting book, and one that I think that the entire public should read before making blanket statements about the autism/vaccine controversy.
